seemed possibly to be the admission by president obama that america would now be actively henning these rebels and presumably arming them in the process. what did you make of that development in this story? >> reporter: if that's the way this is going to take shape over the coming weeks and months, it's clearly going to be a very protracted affair, because the opposition really isn't in a place to face off against gadhafi's army, even if you neutralize the army, their heavy weapons, their superiority, and advantage on the battlefield, what would seem to be serving -- gadhafi's armed the tribes loyal to him so you see people with more weapons on gadhafi's side and will use them against the rebels. this will turn to a wider civil war where even gadhafi can't predict what's going to happen. if the united states and others are going to arm the rebels, he's going to have to keep the pressure up on the rebels and he's going to have to arm the population that will support him. those oil installations that the rebels have just taken over the last few days piers. >> nic robertson, i want t

crisis in libya demands america's attention. >> the united states should not and cannot intervene every time there's a crisis somewhere in the world. but i firmly believe that when innocent people are being brutalized, when someone like gadhafi threatens a bloodbath that could destabilize a national region, then it's in our national interest to act. >> nbc's mike viqueira is our national correspondent on alex. >> what prompted the president to speak out on monday? >> after criticism from the left and the right, democrats and republicans here in washington. the president is suffering from two perceptions here, alex. first, this came very suddenly. usually when americans start to see tomahawks flying off or airplanes in flight drops dropping smart bombs, it comes after weeks if not months of debate. there was no such -- there was no such action. secretary of state hillary clinton was in paris last weekend for a summit. no one was really expecting anything to happen right at that moment. but just as those leaders were sitting down, french war planes were in the air and the white house said

of america is business. two saturdays ago, i was at south by southwest, a very exciting activity that takes place in austin, texas, it not only promotes the live music industry, which is huge in austin, live music capital of the world, but in addition, it promotes entrepreneurship among people with new, great ideas. and those new, great idea people, all -- i talk to them, they are so excited. such great young people. many of them in the high tech industry but in all the industries. those young people sat there and told me the one thing you can do that would hurt us the most is tax stock options and put up regulations that would prevent me doing what i need to do in my project. so if the government will stay out of my way and if you won't impose taxes on the very source of investment money that i'm seeking as a new entrepreneur, if you don't do those two things and you stay out of the way, i've got an idea that can change this country. and many of them have just those ideas. some of the things we have now like facebook, those things like they made a movie about and all that stuff, all that w

a change in attitude amongst opposition members toward america, now they do believe is firmly behind them. this is the kind of legitimacy they are looking for, especially as they share the same goal at the end of the day. they want to see gadhafi removed from power. they don't necessarily want to see that taking place by some sort of an air strike, they want to be the ones to do it themselves. >> arwa, we'll stay in close toich with you as well. >>> there are now new warnings that a bloodless coup may be in the works in yemen. we're getting late word of a possible deal, stand by. >>> president obama already setting the stage for the next phase of the mission against libya. and america's role in it. we'll find out if there's any new light on why smoke has been spewing from two krip emed nuclear reactors in japan. ♪ when it's planes in the sky ♪ ♪ for a chain of supply, that's logistics ♪ ♪ when the parts for the line ♪ ♪ come precisely on time ♪ that's logistics ♪ ♪ a continuous link, that is always in sync ♪ ♪ that's logistics ♪ ♪ there will be no more stress

too contradictory characterizations of what america's interest is in libya. what did you hear from that exchange between secretaries gates and clinton? >> well, gates is clearly a realist. he's always been. this is not new. that's how he's been able to serve two presidents well, both bush and obama. but the notion of what is vital interest is something that one can debate. if you had asked me -- and i come out of a realist background myself. if you had asked me six months ago, do we have an interest to intervene in libya, i would have said, probably not, i would have to scratch my head to see whether we did or not. but things have changed dramatically over the past few weeks. libya is not just about libya. we see all these revolutions are connected. we see that public empowerment in the region is connected. we see that the message that is sent in libya is heard in damascus and in yemen. there is a very important american interest in the revolutions and particularly in seeing the peaceful revolutions that are seeking primarily freedom and dignity succeed because that is the best ant
